Home at last.

I've just about hit the wall, it's 6.15 pm here and 1.45 am Mexico Time…I've kissed the kids, cuddled the babies, read stories to Tilly, watered the garden  and been to the market.. Now I'm just going to sleep for a long time…  But I did work on the plane… E and D… the D…

Headlines – 3 y.o. boy holds up plane.

A 3 year old boy was determined not to be bound to a seat on an American Airlines flight out of Dallas today. The plane taxied to the edge of the Dallas airport…. waiting for the said child to comply….however, despite his Mothers wailing, his fathers physical handling, the child wedged himself under the front…

On my way home.

It's thanksgiving in the USA today…. I imagine, that many of my friends are spending the day with their families in celebration….but I had mine a little earlier than most. The Quilt group of San Miguel de Allende held a special thanksgiving dinner for me yesterday. What can I say, except that their efforts left…

A quilters breakfast.

Video  taken on my little flip camera….!!! 4 of us went out for breakfast this morning….. Yoli had told me of a place where they cook goat and lamb… I believe that they prepare the meat by marinading it and putting it in a pit with hot coals. It's then covered with Banana leaves and…

I’m getting a little behind….!!!

I haven't even mentioned the events of yesterday AND they are quilt related…I met about 30 ladies at the home of one of the members of the local quilt group here in San Miguel de Allende. It was a a lovely experience for me to be invited to the home of someone living here. In…

Dolores Hildalgo photos of a rural city. I guess you can see from my photos that many of them are taken with an idea of using them for color. Lets look at this photo…. It was taken purely because I like the colors….The colors are stunning, they give a feeling of warmth, despite that fact…

A bit of excitement….

Photos of San Miguel de Allende  set No 2. It's getting harder to write the blog…. the wi fi here seems to have a mind of it's own and it's almost impossible to upload photos at the  moment…. I think everyone is on line at the same time.For a short while I was able to…

A quiet day.

I filmed today…. I sat quietly and observed. I visited the art galley, churches and sat in the square…. The weather was kinder today….I crashed a fancy wedding in my bright orange sweat shirt… The rich and famous were there, the outfits were amazing and everyone was extraordinarily beautiful…. I ate sushi at a fabulous…

Textiles, Tastes and tantalising experiences.

Photos of San Miguel Allende Images of an interesting city. I've had a wonderful day just wandering through streets and markets… of course I'm always looking for textiles.. and that includes heavily embroidered garments. hand woven shawls and other items of clothing. The processes of making handmade garments is tedious and time-consuming: perhaps spinning the…

Another day in Mexico.

Yesterday was fascinating in the extreme. I had a 10 hour tour to Taxco….. sadly, I wasn't able to do my own thing…. the history was interesting, the vision wonderful, the guide was the age of my grandfather and had difficulty maneuvering around the steep cobblestone streets. We were pasted with a tag that told…
